Seresto collars seem to have a much better reputation than older flea type collars especially the cheapies you could buy from the grocery store.
Ticks, on the other hand, have a reputation that has gotten steadily worse with increased understanding of some of the diseases they carry.
People who are 'anti chemical' without exploring the particulars of the chemical in question, don't seem to realize that a) everything is made of chemicals and b) some of the most toxic substances known are 'natural'.
To those people I say that the time to 'do your homework' is time well spent, research the particular chemical.
It isn't difficult. I'm a senior and when I was young and had to research, I had to walk to the public library. You have the internet at your fingertips, and your dog is worth the effort.
